Hello? My Eyebrows were shaved half off by my sister... and it is so embarrasing at school, I cry when ever I see my self in the mirror, how long will it take to grow them back and where or what can I do/get to speed up that process?

I would expect it to be much less noticeable in a few weeks, long before fully grown. ...Read more
